The View’s co-host Joy Behar is still furious at Meghan McCain for ruining her swipe at President Trump. The panel was memorializing the passing of the late President George H.W. Bush, who passed away last weekend at the age of 94. Behar tried to use the death of the former president to attack Trump, specifically on the environment; Bush 41 signed the Clean Air Act into law during his administration. Behar was trying to take a swipe at Trump for allegedly undoing this law, but McCain ran a blitz, interrupting Behar and suggesting they focus solely on the late president. Behar was not having any of it (via RCP):
“He signed into law the Clean Air Act amendment of 1990, one of the most sweeping environmental statutes ever. This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did, and Obama did. And if I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect and the fact that --.”
That is as far as Behar got with her point, because fellow co-host Meghan McCain wasn’t having it.
“Can we focus on the president, please? I don’t want to talk about Trump,” McCain said, interrupting Behar.
“I’m not interested in your ‘one issue voter’ when we’re honoring a great president who passed.”
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg announced that they were cutting to a commercial, but you can see McCain and Behar still going at each other as the camera panned out. Now, Behar is reportedly threatening to leave the show, saying that McCain was an “entitled b*tch” who needs to get under control (via Mediaite):
On Monday, we posted about a fiery clash on The View between Joy Behar and Meghan McCain which — even by the show’s normal standard for heated debate — could only be considered intense. According to a report, the real fireworks began after the show went to break — leading one of the hosts to threaten to quit.
The Daily Mail claims that Joy Behar continued to fume as the show cut to commercial on Monday, and said she would leave the show if “this sh*t doesn’t stop.”
“I can’t take this much more,” Behar reportedly said.
Behar took aim at McCain — whom she reportedly called an “entitled b*tch.”
“Get this b*tch under control!” Behar reportedly said. She added, “I’ve tolerated a lot of sh*t on this show but I’m at my wits’ end with this entitled b*tch.
Oh, so Joy was triggered that McCain offered some reason, decency, and another point of view. Yeah, that sounds like a typical liberal.
